  • Shopped for our ingredients in the same plaza and made several great dishes. Lots of fun!

  • El instructor Fernando muy bueno. Sabe mucho y enseña muy bien!! Muy buena experiencia para aprender a cocinar una buena tortilla de papa y una paella.

  • Great time with the family. Great food and we are going to test the recipes at home.

  • This is a must do! We wanted to do something different in Madrid whilst combining food, drink, and meeting new people. We got exactly what we wanted and more! Fernando was amazing, very informative, extremely funny, and involved everyone in the class. Sitting down together to eat after was awesome!

  • Great small cooking class. Instructor was amazing and food was incredible. We've already made our own Paella at home and it was awesome.
    My only advice - bring a pen and paper to take notes. There is a lot of great info that isn't included in the recipe book you get.

  • So much fun!!! we made a salad, Spanish omelet, and learned the correct way to make paella!! we also has some of the best sangria I have ever tasted! Would highly recommend this class!

  • Small class of 3 people Teacher/ chef was great Have used the recipes at home many times since

  • This was an excellent cooking class. Great value for all the information we received, hands on, and much more. Don't hesitate to sign-up for this class.

  • The tour was amazing for me. The chef, Fernando Cler, was very knowledgeable and gave us much information relative to the dishes, as well as how to prepare individual food items.

  • This was very good and fun. I have already made the paella, sangria several times. Also had the recipes emailed to us.
